Out of all the Obamacare signups to date, how many are from people who were previously uninsured? Extrapolating from signups in New York, Charles Gaba provides the following estimates:
Unsurprisingly, people who were already insured dominated the early signups. Since the beginning of 2013, however, it's mostly been people who are getting insurance for the first time. If Gaba is right, by March we'll have about 4 million workers who are newly insured via private plans, plus several more millions who have newly qualified for Medicaid. It's a start.
